From MQA
Global music and entertainment platform TIDAL has announced the availability of 'Master' quality recordings. A wide variety of content from labels and artists, including Warner Music Group's world-renowned music catalog, is now available in Master audio across all of TIDAL's available markets worldwide.

TIDAL has integrated MQA, the award-winning technology that enables this innovation, and has offered it to all TIDAL HiFi tier subscribers under a new 'Master' listing. Initially available on desktop, a wide range of recordings are already available, and the collection will grow rapidly.

"TIDAL is committed to bringing members closer to their favorite musicians and offering MQA sound quality will allow subscribers to hear music just as it was recorded in the studio," said a TIDAL representative. "We're thrilled to bring master quality sound to our members."

Mike Jbara, MQA CEO, said, "TIDAL is an artist-centric music company. We could not be more excited that they share our vision of having fans hear the authentic performance of their favorite music." Visit TIDAL.com/Masters to learn more; non-members can sign up for a complimentary 60-day trial.
